Last Tuesday morning saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. This shot was taken a couple of minutes before the sun appeared over the Niagara Escarpment. I was considering it as my pick for week 51.
One week of my 52 week photo project to go. I’m surprised that I made it this far given the weather at various times throughout the year and some of the personal issues that cropped up shortly after starting the project.

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is Unusual Tones or Textures.
The morning after the challenge was posted I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. Despite having checked the weather conditions before heading out there was thick cloud over the area, I couldn’t tell when or where the sun rose over the Niagara Escarpment.
I noticed that the water was an unusual tone, almost mirror like and brighter than I would expect with the heavily overcast sky. It made some of the old wood piles sticking out of the water appear to be floating in the air.

Chantry Island and it’s lighthouse are on the horizon at the left side of the frame. There’s no EXIF data the original being on film but given the apparent angle of view I’d guess it was taken with my 17mm Tamron lens on an Olympus OM body.
Saturday morning of week 47 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. I wasn’t planning on being down there as the weather forecast was for rain starting before sunrise. I checked the local weather when the alarm went off which was reporting mostly cloudy but dry so I decided to head out.
I get the current weather conditions from the nearest Environment Canada Weather Station which is at Wiarton Airport. The airport is across Colpoy’s Bay on top of the Niagara Escarpment. In this shot the airport is to the left of the right hand tree.
The band of clear sky over the Niagara Escarpment didn’t last long before it was full cloud cover. The dark specks on the foreground snow are seeds from one of the trees on the shoreline.
A shot from Sunday afternoon of week 46. I did a monochrome conversion and then gave it a sepia tone.
